How do i reset my garmin nuvi 200w satnav it says no detailed maps found how can i reinstall them


Locate the reset button, located on the back of the device, in the lower left corner. Remove the sticker covering the button, and use a straightened paper clip to depress the tab.

To reinstall maps

Connect your Garmin Nuvi to your computer via USB cable. You can only update the maps through connecting to your computer.

Open the "myGarmin" website and sign in with your Garmin account. Make sure to sign in with the account that you've purchased the map updates on.

heres a link to the site;


http://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/login.htm.

Click the "myMaps" tab on the myGamrin dashboard. This will load a list of all of your purchased map upgrades.

Click the drop-down menu in the "Recent Map Purchases" section. Select your Garmin Nuvi from the list of devices.

Install the Garmin Communicator Plugin when prompted. This is required in order for the Garmin website to transfer the map files to your Gamrin software on your computer.

Download and install Garmin Express. This is the program that allows your computer to interact with your Garmin Nuvi.

Register your device in Garmin Express. If you haven't already registered your device, you'll be prompted to when you start Garmin Express. You'll need to register in order to update the maps.

Click the "Updates" tab in Garmin Express. This will show all of the available updates for your Nuvi, including the new map update you just purchased.

Click the "Show Details" option next to your Map Update. Click the "Install" button that appears. You will need to accept the agreement before the update installs.

Wait for the maps to download and install. Once you agree to the terms, the map update will begin downloading to Garmin Express, and will then be transferred to your Nuvi. This will likely take several minutes to complete.

Close Garmin Express and unplug the Nuvi when the update is complete. The Nuvi will reboot and begin installing the updated software on the device. This may take another couple of minutes.

If you weren't automatically prompted to install Garmin Express, you can download it from

Uppdatering


To update the map is very simple, follow the steps below:
  1. All you need to do is to go to garmin nuvis website,
  2. Then you place the cursor on the maps link on the page, a list will pop out,
  3. Then you select update maps,
  4. Then you click on check for updates,
  5. A page will come up prompting you to install plug ins,
  6. Install the plug in,
  7. It will bring up a list with the available maps. After installing the plug in.
That is how you update your maps.
But if you have the plug ins, it will automatically bring out the lists once you click on update maps. Try to download the "webupdater" for your nuvi on your computer so it will inform you once there is a new update.
Complements of the season to you over there.

My garmin freezes on startup. Can't master reset


Hi,

You could try pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, try a master reset by:

Start with the unit off and unplugged from power.
  1. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  2. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit on.
  3. Release the power button when the device powers on.
    • You will see a new message: "Do you really want to erase all user data?"
  4. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  5. Touch "Yes"
  6. Restart the unit
Please let me know if it helps.
Thanks

How to update map to new roads.


The only way to do this is through an update.

Nextar does have a 2009 SD card with new maps on it. Go to their website, look in the lower right hand corner, and there is a link to the new maps update.

It has a list of compatible devices. If yours is on the list, then that's it!

I'm trying to the free update to my garmin nuvi 310/360'. I've had it a few years and never updated yet. It's not listed in the mandatory software update list. thanks

I know I've tried. You either live with the old map or buy the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOUR Garmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

The only way you can be assured that your map update was successful is to check the version.
1) On your main screen, you'll have a little wrench tool, click on it.
2) On the next screen, go to the "Map" icon.
3) Next screen, click on the "Map Info"
4) Last screen you'll see the maps isntalled and the year.

Best of Luck!
